It's always best to inform the (tomcat) list what changed on the server
between the last time that everything was working -and- now (the time that
it is not working. What operating system are you running? Based on my
research (see my later comments below), it seems as though you are running
Windows? I am running Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit, and I recognized that
my server restarted automatically this morning, most likely, because of
automatic (Windows) updates. Was your server updated last night or this
morning as well, because of automatic Windows updates? and did the windows
update(s) impact your tomcat install/configuration? :)

I just searched google for the following:

service on Local Computer. Error 109: The pipe has been ended[1]

and found the following (among other interesting 'search results'):

start/stop Tomcat 7 windows service on 64-bit results in error[2]
